What are wine futures, and can I invest in them?

En Primeur, also known as wine futures, is a method of buying new vintages of wine before they're bottled. Critics and other industry insiders have given the wine an initial rating, but the wine is still 2 to 3 years away from release. This system is only available for wine in Burgundy and Bordeaux regions.

With Rekolt you can invest in wine futures. While exploring our selection, you can filter using the dedicated tag to see all the wines which are “En primeur”. The process remains the same, except that instead to be stored, the wine is still in the barrel at the producer's estate. You are notified once the wine is bottled and shipped to our warehouse.
